to say about living at Atawhai:
"I had every help - in many ways - during the
transition from my own home"
"Our experience (of moving to Atawhai)
was a transition from a busy street where
we last resided to a much more peaceful
Emmy and Andy Cornelisse
"Before I moved in I had very little
knowledge of life in a Retirement Village. But
it was not long before I made new friends"

new villas please contact Jeanette

Whilst Stocks Last
A ceremony to farewell Napier Hospital, which
was finally sold last week, is being held outside
the old accident and emergency department at
4pm on Sunday, September 11.
The gathering is open to anyone who wishes to
say a final goodbye and acknowledge the proud
history of service provision and the people whose
lives were impacted by the Napier Hospital before
it was closed, says HOPE Hawke s Bay
chairperson and Napier City councillor Michelle
She also paid special tribute to the many people
who fought for the hospital so hard, for so long --
the utter dedication of people such as the late
Hana Cotter and Viv Lawton, former city council-
lor Robin Gwynn, the Napier Health Action Group
members, including Alan Rhodes, and countless
others who are now sadly facing the fact that it is
indeed gone for good .
The gathering will be particularly poignant for
past staff members of Napier Hospital, Napier
families whose children were born at Arohaina,
and also the former patients and their families
Tourists give Bay thumbs up
Most people who visit our region would
highly recommend the Bay as a place to
visit, according to Hawke s Bay Tour-
ism s Visitor Research Project.
More than 95 per cent of inter-
national and domestic visitors would
recommend Hawke s Bay to others, and
more than 90 per cent would consider
visiting the Bay again.
The average domestic visitor stays in
the Bay for 4.5 nights, spending $392,
and the average international visitor
stays seven nights, spending $490.
The results are the conclusion of a
research project led by Hawke s Bay
Tourism in conjunction with The New
Zealand Tourism Research Institute
within Auckland University of Tech-
Managed by Dr Simon Milne from
AUT, the visitor research study started
on August 1, 2010, and finished on May
During that time, more than 80
regional tourism businesses including
i-Sites were involved as data-collection
points. Visitors details were obtained
and an online survey about their
experience to Hawke s Bay was sent to
them to complete.
The research represents a sample
size of more than 1500 people.
The focus was to ascertain how
visitors search for information, where
they come from, why they visit, satis-
faction levels with their overall visit
and Hawke s Bay tourism products and
Hawke s Bay s most appealing
attributes were listed as beautiful
scenery, good climate, wine and food
and art deco.
Hannah Tamaki gracious
Destiny Church co-founder Hannah Tamaki has
congratulated the newly elected head of the Maori
Women s Welfare League.
Kataraina O Brien, from Tauranga, was named
league leader in Napier on Saturday after a con-
Some league officials threw Mrs Tamaki off the
ballot after she set up 10 new league branches in
Auckland and was accused of setting them up with
Destiny churchgoers to gain votes.
Mrs Tamaki took the case to the High Court,
where she won the right to run for the presidency.
The election followed the death of national
president Meagan Joe of Napier earlier this year.
Mixed messages for PM
Spelling it out: Protesters outside the Municipal Theatre.
On the ball: John Key signs a special rugby ball for Napier
18-month-old Oliver-John Moody. Oliver-John's mum Renee is from
the English town of Rugby and the limited-edition ball was a gift
from her parents.
Preschool educators gave Prime Minister
John Key two wildly different welcomes
on his visit to Napier last week.
Fifty placard-waving kindergarten
teachers and other protesters were disap-
pointed when Mr Key chose to avoid
them by entering the Napier Municipal
Theatre via the front door rather than
the Pan Pac Foyer entrance.
A public meeting in the theatre was
attended by 260 people.
But it was all smiles on Thursday
morning when the PM stopped by a
preschool music session at the St Thomas
More church hall in Onekawa.
Mr Key looked very much like a poli-
tician on the campaign trail, avoiding the
cliched kissing of babies in favour of
tickling a bunch of toddlers.
The music group was run by Havelock
North-based PORSE, which has more
than 6000 children enrolled in its in-
home care programmes nationwide.
Mr Key was also introduced to PORSE
In-Home educator Mary-Ann Wereta of
Hastings, who after 10 years on the dom-
estic purposes benefit has now started a
career with PORSE.
Other functions included opening
Etika Dairies innovative UHT baby milk
factory at Whakatu and a forum for high
school head boys and girls at Hastings
